Grizzly Kiki | Pop Culture & Interviews With Queer Artists

Grizzly Kiki began in April 2014 as a pop culture and drag-centric podcast hosted by Robert Lechuga & Daniel Silva. We launched with recaps of RuPaul’s Drag Race and other reality programming. Shortly after releasing the first few episodes, we narrowed our focus to create a podcast that was unique in concept and would serve a community near and dear to us: DRAG QUEENS!!!!!!!!!!!!! The podcast is equal parts oral history and good old-fashioned kiki. We found that there were few platforms where Drag and Nightlife Artists could talk about their art and themselves in an open and honest way. Most of what is known about these artists comes from videos posted on the Internet or what they experience in bars and clubs. It was clear that there were stories to be told and shared with the world. Our mission is to create a comfortable and safe environment, where these artists can share their histories and experiences. Ours is a podcast that is meant to serve the drag and nightlife community by capturing the artists’ voices and making them available to the public. Grizzly Kiki is a program for drag enthusiasts, Drag Artists, and everyone in between. Listen and Join the Party!!


Late To The Party

On this episode, we talk about some of the things that we were "Late To The Party" for. From Britney Spears to White Castle to Rosalía and Billie Eilish, we were surprised at the some of the things that took a while to show up on our radar. Not ones to have our heads buried in the sand, we decided to cover the celebrities, shows, & trends that we now embrace.

We also discuss going to see Beetlejuice on Broadway; how to encourage the use of pronouns in everyday work interactions; Awkwafina's new show on Comedy Central, "Awkwafina is Nora from Queens"; & RuPaul's upcoming gig as the first Drag Queen to host SNL.

In this week's "Keto Korner," we share our Vegetable & Sausage Soup video, based on a recipe from Wholesome Yum.

With the 2020 election on the horizon, head over to Drag Out The Vote, where you can find voter registration resources, how to become involved, & donate to support their initiatives!
